itself. prime minister benjamin netanyahu says while he's sorry for the loss of life, it is unavoidable, claiming hamas is using cities as human shields. carl goss has more. >> there's been no letup this morning. we've watching the goz sa skyline as we see pluming coming up, israeli bombs explode on targets below. we see the vapor trails in the air as hamas and islamic jihad militants fire off rockets towards israel. let's bring you up to speed with the developments. breaking this morning, an aerial drone from gaza infiltrated israel and was shot down by a patriot missile. across gaza the conflict quickly escalating. israeli air strikes hit three
training facilities and buildings of hamas' military wing. thousands who live on the gaza strip now fleeing. including hundreds of palestinian americans rushing to get out. >> it was really scary. i wasn't used to it, especially since i live in america. >> reporter: over the weekend the israeli military confirms boots in the ground with its commandos raiding a missile site. wolf blitzer was told they're possibly preparing for more robust ground invasion as israeli air strikes continue to take a powerful toll inside gaza. >> we have brought up forces and there is a substantial forces on the border with gaza. if the order is given, we are prepared for that type of activity. >> reporter: on sunday palestinian protesters clashed with israeli soldiers in the west bank throwing stones and
shooting fireworks. according to the palestinians, over a thousand have been injured and nearly 200 killed in air strikes. the u.n. estimates 70% are civilians. on saturday an air strike demolished the house of gaza's chief of police. along with his family, 18 people were killed. israeli prime minister netanyahu says hamas is deliberately putting civilians in the line of fire. >> here is the difference between us, we're using missile defense to protect our civilians, and they're using civilians to protect their missiles. >> reporter: israeli military is continuing to drop leaf lets telling civilians to flee from their homes. that can be a sign that they're preparing for a ground invasion.
essentially there is nowhere for the gazans to run to. the entire strip is about the size of metropolitan las vegas and detroit and the borders are sealed. the only place they can run is a little further south to seek shelter in schools or to seek shelter with other family members. back to you, chris. >> karl, a very important point. these people are leaving but where will they go. turning to michael orrin, cnn middle east analyst and former ambassador to the united states. michael, thank you very much for joining us. i know you've had to take to the safe room in your home because of the uptick in violence there. how are you doing? >> reporter: i'm doing fine, chris, thank you. good morning, kate and michaela. coming to you from the border with gaza, the most shelled and rocketed city in israel, more
shells than probably any city in the world. it's a symbol of every fear, the entire country could become like center wrote. firing as far north as hyphae, but also a symbol for israeli courage, for sticking to our guns and not being chased away. it is harrowing, and while the palestinian civilians have suffered significant casualties on their side, on the israeli side you have casualties you don't see, the trauma, the fear, the disruptions of daily life. i live in tel aviv and we've been under shell fire every day. >> what are we hearing behind you right now, michael? >> that is a very loud generator, chris, not a siren. >> okay. good. the latest bombing. people have become too comfortable with dynamic of israel responding to what it says are unchecked attacks from the palestinians, from gaza specifically.
you say, however, while it looks bad, there may be opportunity here. where do you see opportunity? >> reporter: well, in many crises there are opportunities. i don't think anybody certainly on the israeli side, i think i can speak for the united states, too, wants to go back to the status quo ante where hamas is able to use, say, a ceasefire to increase the size and range of its rocket arsenal. this could be an opportunity to change the status quo and for the better i think for the benefit of israelis, palestinians and everybody in the region if in addition to the ceasefire you take the precedent that president obama used so successfully in removing chemical weapons from syria, get american inspectors into gaza to remove the long range missiles, israel could ease the maritime blockade of the gaza strip. there could be international aid for the citizens of gaza, not just to repair war damage but
relieve the terrible economic depression that has been reigning there because of hamas misrule and mismanagement. you can use that opportunity even to strengthen the palestinian authority, the moderate palestinians by taking palestinian policemen trained by the united states and put them at the border crossings perhaps even between gaza and egypt. it's not a perfect situation but it's better than what went before and it could be a framework for moving ahead on the piece process. >> while those are sound ideas and i appreciate you for offering them up, but first when you look at syria as a model, not only do we have a high degree of deception by syrian authorities with what they're telling us versus what is found by inspectors, but the mass exodus, as you well know, one of the biggest movements of humanity in recent history fleeing from syria right now with very little chance of finding a home anywhere nearby, you're going to have the same
problem in gaza as we were hearing karl penhaul tell us, how do you deal with getting good information from hamas, how do you deal with the mass exodus of people? >> reporter: well, in syria the case is there's huge fighting going on there, as many as 200,000 people killed there. so people are fleeing -- hundreds of thousands of people, actually millions fleeing the fighting. if the fighting ends in gaza, the residents of gaza can go back to their home. that is what happened in previous rounds of fighting between israel and hamas in 2012 and in 2008 and '9, there were exoduses of palestinian civilians from their homes, they came back after a ceasefire. that would be the goal here, too, to restore calm, but also not to go back to that old status quo where every two years you have a round of fighting, but to create a new and more stable background. i think this crisis perhaps offers that type of opportunity.
>> a big political question will be does the u.s. have the strength to broker peace the way it has in the past, no longer having egypt with morsi as a friendly to intervene in the situation, will al sissy be able to have the same effect. michael, let's end on something else here. to the yunltd states audience, they see strong israel killing civilians in gaza. we most often see the human toll on the palestinian side. what do you offer as perspective as to who is being attacked here and what is continuing the cycle of violence? >> well, just quickly to your point about egypt, this is a great opportunity for egypt, too. there's been a strained relationship between the sissi government about the way the
egyptians came to power, whether it was a military quecoupe or n. as for your second point, chris, this is a country 067.5 million people. all of a sudden you're hit by what is now over 1,000 rockets over the course of a week. you can imagine if hundreds -- literally hundreds of millions of americans, nearly 200 million americans under shell fire, the people of the united states would expect their government to do something about it and do something about it very forcefully, even if there weren't a large number of casualties. israelis, you can the average israeli on the street, they won't apologize for the fact they haven't had more civilians killed. they've invested heavy in civil defense and iron dome on the palestinian side. on the hamas side, they've invested only in those capabilities. that's why there's a higher level of casualties on the
palestinian side. so there's a disparity, it's going to cause a public diplomacy challenge for israel. better to have the public diplomacy challenge than to have hundreds of casualties, including fatalities. >> michael, you're making the point we heard from beebee netanyahu, we're using missiles to defend our citizens, they're using citizens to defend therapy missiles. michael oren, thank you very much. please stay safe. we'll check back with you. >> thank you, have a good day. >> michaela, over to you. let's get a look at more headlines. army sergeant bowe bergdahl is returning to life as an active duty u.s. soldier as early as today. he's completed therapy at an army hospital and is expected to begin working at ft. sam houston in san antonio. he'll live in an army barracks with two soldiers who will help him adjust to life in the u.s. after five years in taliban

>> and he's got something to say. now what? we've got world cup hangover. >> that's my biggest disappointment that it's just over. >> now what? >> now we'll have to come up with something else to watch. back to the reruns. let's talk weather though. expert bizarre weather to hit the country this week. we are serious. it is bizarre. it will affect millions of americans. midwest will see unusually low temperatures this week. northeast and mid atlantic, they're dealing with severe thunderstorms and heavy rain and the most magical place on earth, not immune to weather woes, it appears. people stuck on the monorail at disney's epcot. george has more. >> the stormy weather, we can expect that. it is july in chicago. cool earl weather, it might be time to pull out the scarfs, you may need it. the next several days, temperatures 10 to 20 degrees cooler. for us the story is severe
weather and a lot of rain. flash flooding over the weekend in suburban chicago turned residential streets into impassable rivers. this driver tried to cross it. but then look. moments later he and his son had to be rescued after the car got stuck. so much rain fell so quickly. it flooded basements and overwhelmed the sewer system. >> it came down so fast, the water couldn't keep up. our sewers couldn't keep up with the water we had. everything backed up on us. >> two to four inches fell in northern illinois. four the six inches soaked communities down state. more rain is in the forecast. in florida, the weather caused a chaotic scene at the happiest place on earth. about 120 passengers had to be evacuate friday the monorail at disney world after a power outage caused it to stop in its tracks, trapping passengers 30 feet in the air. witnesses say they saw a few
bolts of lightning nearby. disney officials blame bad weather for the power outage. in colorado lightning strikes from passing storms made for dangerous conditions in high attitudes of rocky mountain national park. >> i felt like something hit me in the head. i lost my vision and hearing for a solid ten seconds. >> officials say two people died as a result of lightning strikes in as many days. 13 others were injured. looking ahead at the forecast, many parts of the country are in store for the feeling of fall and what's normally the warmest time of the year. unseasonably cooler temperatures are expected as the jet stream dips down farther south than usual, dropping normal summer temperatures, some 10 to 20 degrees, though in places like wisconsin, people are all taking it in stride. >> after the winter we had i think 60 degrees still feels rather tropical. >> i disagree with her. here in chicago we don't really have summer days to spare.
we get about three months of good, warm weather. we need them. but okay, so we're getting cool weather on the way. chris, where you are in new york along the east coast, we understand there will be a lot of rain and the threat of severe weather. keep watch of the weather. be careful. >> appreciate that. that is a stunning jacket you have on, george howell. thank you for bringing that to our viewers. he appreciates a compliment. he likes his sar torl prowess being called out. let's get to meteorologist jennifer grey in for indra petersons. only good news. it's monday, never forget. >> that's right. you will have good news. while it's cold in the mornings, the afternoons still warming up to the upper 60s to low 70s. it's really going to be a refreshing change for the middle of july. those temperatures are going to dip down. we will be in the mid 40s in
marquette the next couple mornings. it doesn't like like we're breaking records. but we are running 10 to 15 degrees below normal. let's look at the high temperatures because we will be getting up to around 71 degrees in chicago tuesday and wednesday afternoons. that is 15 degrees below normal. look at marquette, 60 degrees, your high temperature on tuesday. 59 for a high temperature on monday in the middle of july. just crazy weather going on. we'll also be dealing with some severe weather. it's going to go along with this. that's going to be pushing into the northeast. d.c., philly, new york. you all can see large hail, damaging winds and isolated tornadoes. also that rain threat is going to be there. we coupled see anywhere from one to three inches of rain, possibly two to three in new york and boston, guys. >> i'm going stick with your line. it's refreshing. i like that. thanks, jennifer. >> i don't know that definition of refreshing, hail and tornadic winds. >> we'll keep trying for it.
that's our goal. coming up next on "new day," the border crisis, is congress ready to act on the president's nearly $4 billion request for emergency funding or should the president act on his own? it depends on whou i don't ask. our political panel is here to break it down. united airlines plane diverted to a remote island. what happened when it landed and should it have taken off in the first place? stay with us.

♪ xfinity presents the people's hotlist where you choose this summer's top 100 shows and movies. and all you have to do is watch with xfinity on demand. now through july 23rd. vote! welcome back to "new day." what will congress do concerning the border crisis? the president has called on congress to approve $3.7 billion in emergency funding to deal with the tens of thousands of children who have crossed the border in resented months. but with democrats and republicans dug in on the core issues, a solution seems anything but clear. let's bring in kevin madden, cnn
political commentator and dan res trep poe, former adviser to president obama on latin american affairs. a lot to go over. a lot happened over the weekend. at least a lot of fighting over the issue, not a lot of action. listen here real quick, guys, to two lawmakers who seem just as dug in as ever. seems like we're going nowhere fast. listen to this. >> there has to be a halt to this. that's what we want and the best way to do that is for planeloads of these young people to be returning the the country of origin. we can't have an unending flow of children from central america into our country. >> i say we are the strongest, wealthiest, most powerful nation in the world and children are coming to our borders. we should protect them. i will say this, follow the law, and the law said we must put the children's interests first, which is what president barack
obama is doing. >> from the sunday shows, kevin, it doesn't sound like congress is any closer to figuring out what they want do do, at least what they want do do first and they're running out of time. a couple more weeks until the august recess. are they going to leave without doing anything about this? >> unfortunately, with the way things are on capitol hill, nothing is a certainty. you heard from both the left and right, both saying we have a crisis on the border and we need to act. unfortunately we have a president who has very bad relations with capitol hill. he has duelling constituencies up there and in many cases telling them two different things. there are a lot of facts that want to help send resources to help solve this problem down on the border, but the white house is really going to have to work to mend a lot of fences up on capitol hill if they want to get that done. in an election year, there are a
lot of republicans and democrats who don't necessarily want to be seen as just throwing money at the problem. so in order to get this done, i think the president is also going to have to make some concessions on border enforcement if he's going to get this done before they leave town. >> dan restrepo, where is the humanity? people want to argue law. they should also remember it was president bush that signed this victim protection act that makes it difficult to repatriot kids. how did kids get lost in politics. >> there's, chris, humanity here in making sure these kids don't start on this journey in the first place. that's part of managing this. this is an incredibly dangerous journey folks are embarking upon. part of the way you stop that or slow this down is the folks that
don't are the right to be in the united states, they get sent home as expeditiously as possible so you get the signal to the system, you get the signal to folks in northern and central america that there isn't an advantage of heading along this perilous journey. there is humanity all along the debate. it gets lost in the immigration politics in washington. >> of that 2008 law that has become one element of this core issue, there are a couple of lawmakers coming out now saying that president obama does not need congress to move ahead and change this. mike rogers of michigan, dianne feinstein who originally helped write this law. they say he can change regulation. he does not need congressional action to be able to change how children are dealt with within this system. do you think that's possible? >> it's not clear to me if that's possible. even a regulatory change would take time. i think a legislative change which the administration is trying to work with congress on is probably the fastest way to get to a place where the folks on the ground have more
discretion, has more flexibility. very few people are talking about repealing the law outright. it's how you apply the law and whether you can apply it more on the ground rather than in an immigration court which are completely overwhelmed. there's two ways to speed the process up. the administration is trying to do both, get more flexibility on the application of the law and inject more resources into an immigration court system that is completely overwhelmed. you need to do both of those things if you're going to be able to, again, reach the dimmer switch. there's no on-off switch on this. you can only change the gradations of this and get it back to a more manageable situation. >> we want to talk about what happened with holder here over the weekend, also. let me bang on this one more time with you, kevin. we all know it's hard to secure the border. there's nothing new there. this money that's being thrown at it, it is being thrown because we don't have the right fix. it's a question of how much, not whether or not people come here. but can you cite me another example before you have had a
flood of child humanity come into the united states and that be ignored in favor of an argument over how they got here? >> well, i guess i think probably the most recent example might have been the boat lifts where cuban immigrants were coming in the early '80s. i think that was a crisis of a different time and of a different nature. not all these crises are exactly the same. but i think the thing that is really holding this up, again, chris, is with the president's lack of relationships up on capitol hill. i am, of course, a partisan republican. if you listen to a lot of democrats, they have an extraordinary level of frustration that the president saw that this problem was something that many people tried to warn them about. you had democrats and republicans as early as march of 2012 -- >> kevin, we're also hearing it from governors. the governors met over the weekend and they're divided
largely along partisan lines. is there a role for governors here or are they going to have to be left dealing with it. >> i don't think the concerns that many of those governors have on the border states, i don't think they're partisan. yes, they're republican. many of the concerns they've had are of substance. these are problems they were pointing out to the administration. if you remember, governor perry himself as early as may 2012 sent the letter to the administration warning them of this impending problem with folks coming to the border from central america. the president was late to react. that is not a judgment of just republicans. many democrats including luis gutierrez, henry cuellar said that as well. >> they aren't even going to visit the kids. the president was down there. what's the nice political word, kerfuffle that he went to texas and didn't visit the kids. they haven't even gone down to see them. i think it's one of the most
naked abuses of politics i've seen in terms of saying something is important, but not eastern going and dealing with it. >> some of them are trying to. >> that's right. kate points out, there were reports of republicans who wanted to go to one of the detention facilities and was barred by dhs from going there. it would have been important to highlight some of the problems down there if the president had seen them for himself. he chose not to. instead, he chose to raise money for his political allies. >> you're not fighting your way in to see the kids? it's because you don't want to. we'll save that for another day. let's switch topics. kate, set this up for us. >> the attorney general did an interview with abc news on sunday. he spoke about race before, but he spoke about it in terms of candid terms we haven't heard before, really suggesting that maybe the republicans -- especially how republicans are
looking at the president, that there is race as part of this. listen to a little bit of what he said to pierre thomas. >> there is a certain level of vee men's directed at me, directed at the president. there's a certain racial component to this for some people. i don't think this is a main driver, but for some there's a racial animus. >> what do you make of it, dan? what do you make of what eric holder is pointing out? >> one is, he thinks only a portion of the animus directed towards him and the president has a basis in race. i think the important thing about eric holder and his role in the national conversation about race, he's unafraid of talking about race. that's important. he has raised and he has been a controversial figure as a result of raising racial issues throughout the administration. he hasnd shied away from it. at the same time i think it's important to remember what he actually said which is that this is a motivation for some portion, not all of the opposition, that the president
and the attorney general facing. >> kevin, quick last word? >> i would agree, yes, racism does exist. to equate any opposition to the president that is substantive as being about race is unhelpful. let's remember, president obama when he was first elected was at 70% approval rating. he's now in the 40s and in many places only the high 30s, not because of his race but because people think he's taking the country in the wrong direction and has advanced the wrong policies. >> key word is substantive. kevin and dan, thank you very much. important conversation to have. you'll be hearing about the attorney general's words all day long. let's take a quick break on "new day." when we come back, terrifying ride over the pacific. a plane diverted to a remote island on reports of a weird smell. it's like a movie. now new questions. should it have ever taken off? we'll take you through it. a dramatic and terrifying scene in turkey. a pregnant woman forced to jump from a burning building.

welcome back to "new day." new questions surrounding a united airlines flight from honolulu to guam forced to land on the remote island of midway because of a mechanical issue. passengers aboard say they smelled a strong electrical odor in the cabin before the plane even took off and described terrifying moments when they hit
turbulence and thought their plane was going down. >> we were all thinking of people at home and our own little ones we had with us. after the 40-foot drop it got really silent in dab bin. people prayed. we all prayed. i prayed. >> joining me is cnn safety analyst and former safety souci. we hear about passengers sitting on the tarmac for several hours. should this plane even have taken off? >> it's hard for me to say because i wasn't there obviously. i tell you what, it's really difficult for me to understand why an aircraft that had that significant of a smell, that much smoke -- actually a haze called ozone actually in the cabin and not be able to replicate that and have the mechanic fix that problem is very qubl in my mind. >> add to the fact that they sat
on the tarmac for some three hours looking into the problem. does that sound as though they knew there was something they needed to investigate? >> obviously there was something very serious going on. the mechanic must have tried and tried to replicate it but wasn't able to replicate the problem and, therefore, returned it to service rather than saying i know it's a serious problem and accepting that i can't find it right now, so maybe we need to bring in another aircraft and delay this flight even longer. a lot of pressure on those mechanics to get the aircraft back in service. i'm not second-guessing the mechanics, but sometimes these problems are intermittent and it's difficult to identify them. >> when you try to replicate them, they don't happen. >> let me ask you about this electrical smell. what could that have been caused by in your expertise? >> the electrical smell is often described as electrical smell, but it's actually ozone, three milligrams of oxygen, it's o 3
rath ir than o 2. extended exposure can be harmful to your lungs, your mouth. it can make you very irritated. it's caused by arcing. a lightning bolt would create ozone, any kind of arcing. this fan that failed has brushes in it that make it a motor. as the brushes move or if there's a short internally, those sparks actually cause the ozone smell. something significant was going wrong in that motor for it to produce that much ozone. >> again, i know you weren't there and weren't involved in the investigation. at first blush, do you think any safety regulations were violated here or they didn't follow proper protocol? >> i suspect that they followed the protocol, but here is where the rub is, that this incident isn't even required to be reported to the ntsb or the faa because it didn't get to the level of which it was a safety hazard. that's a definition that's within ntsb 803 riles.
that tells you exactly what noods to be reported oopsz. this incident didn't need to be reported which is concerning to me. how could you follow a trend? how could you see if this is something that's occurred several times within the whole fleet. the airlines are very good attracting their particular maintenance failures. when you look at it as a systemic area as far as sharing information between other airlines to see if they're experiencing the same problem, that's really difficult to occur because of the barriers to information sharing that are in the system. >> let me wrap up with unite's comment. they say the mechanical issue was due to problem with an equipment supply cooling fan which they say has been corrected and the aircraft was put back to service on saturday. david soucie, thank you so much for joining us very early to talk about this. have a great day. >> thank you, michaela. >> chris? >> spooky stuff, that's for sure. coming up on "new day," the violence in the middle east is getting worse. wolf blitzer is on the ground in the thick of it. we're going to him live straight

painting a very different picture of the man, one even calling him a monster. are they reacting off insight or to the facts of the situation like the rest of us? joining us now, attorney and radio host mo ivory and criminal defense attorney page pate. first thing to discuss, lianna harris, the mother involved. she now has an attorney. there's been some curiosity about her, things that she reacted to, things that she said specifically, what she said when she found out cooper, the child, wasn't in day care and her comments at the eulogy. i want your take. first start with this, mo, why would somebody hire a lawyer to be a mouthpiece to the media instead of hiring a pr person? you think this is always a wrong move for people? >> no. the lawyer could certainly also be working with a pr person that works inside of the law firm. the pr person may not be the face of -- when they meet up
with the news or make statements. it's an important thing for her to be represented. everybody has the right to have representation, innocent or guilty. i think it was a smart move for her to get representation and to put a buffer between her and the media and have somebody who is more skilled at handling obviously what is going to continue to be a barrage of people asking her questions. >> rightly so, page. few sixes fall into the "this makes no sense" category more than this one does. somewhat your take, assuming it's accurate, what the mother said when the day care center told her the son wasn't there, what the mother said during the eulogy. what is her take on that? >> all of the statements create a lot of suspicion about her involvement and whether or not she knew what her husband was doing. i think it is a good idea for her to have legal representation. i know her lawyer personally, but i don't think it's because of the court of public opinion. i think they are focusing more on the potential legal
ramifications of what she has done. i think she wanted a lawyer to at least start a discussion with the district attorney's office and to make sure if she's going to be charged, they figure that out early and try to work something out. i think that's a possibility. >> as you heard in my intro, they can just be learning new information so they're reacting to it as the rest of us are. but character evidence. start with the attorney's take on this, page. what do you think character evidence will mean here? it's never helpful that people say you're a bad person. how important is it here? >> chris, i think it is incredibly important for the defense to have good character witnesses in this case. what they have to do is say, look, the history of ross harris, the people that know ross harris, his background, would never suggest he would do anything like this. if you don't have those character witnesses at trial, then i think it's going to be a tough case to defend. what i've been concerned about is all of the one-sided information that's getting out there in the media.
the defense has not stepped up and given a theory of defense, tried to explain some of the evidence, and as a result they're starting to lose some of their potential character witnesses. >> mo, as we all know, often a good attorney saves it for a courtroom, especially on the defense side. it doesn't help to try things in the media, especially with juries in the past. when we rank the factors, going to page's point about character, i would rank them this way. you forgot your kid, you return to the car. you have an insurance policy on the kid. you were web searching suffocation and then you have the sexting. i put it last. it's least jermaine to me about this whole alternative life theory. how do you see the components of what matters here? >> i mean obviously the prosecution has already -- and they haven't necessarily revealed everything either. so they have definitely made a strong case that there was definitely a plan to kill this child, to live a parent-free lifestyle.
i do think all those factors will be very important. like page said, it will be equally important for character witnesses for the prosecution to come forward to paint a picture of the father that nobody really knew which is what we're getting a glimpse of. they're going through hundreds and hundreds of searches he's done. we've only heard about some of the searches. they say there's a lot more stuff that we don't know. the character witnesses will be equally as important to making sure he's convicted as they will be to trying to set forth a case that he is a loving father. >> strong point, mo. let me finish with you on this, page. of all the things the mother has reportedly said so far, do you think saying to harris in jail, do you think you said too much, is that the statement that bothers you the most? >> chris, it is. when i first heard that, i thought that was going to be something that was difficult not just for leanna harris, but also for her husband, because it suggests they both knew this was going to happen or at least
suggests that the state needs to be focusing in on what she knew, when she knew it and how she can prove it. it did concern me. >> page, mo, thank you very much. we'll be following this closely. everybody wants to know what happened here. that's one of the stories we're following. a lot of news this morning. let's get right to it. . the conflict quickly escalating. >> this is more dangerous, i think, than at any time in the past. >> we're using missile defense to protect our civilians, they're using their civilians to protect the missiles. >> to those contemplating coming here illegally, we will send you back. >> it is a problem of monumental humanitarian impact. in a maneuver hailed as one of the greatest engineering feats in maritime history. shooting suspect curtis reeves, junior is out of jail. >> at the end of loong journey, we're here. he's free. good morning and welcome back to "new day." where do you draw the line
between a nation's self-defense and the loss of civilian life? that is a big question this morning surrounding what's happening in israel. israel says it has to launch targeted air strikes against populated areas of gaza because that's where hamas is hiding its missiles. this morning hundreds of civilian there is are heeding israeli warnings to abandon their homes ahead of a fresh round of strikes. >> still the death toll in gaza is climbing, now more than 1070 people killed. still hundreds of rockets being fired towards israel. joining us from near the israeli-gaza border is wolf blitzer, the anchor of cnn's "situation room." you've been there since last week and seen it firsthand. what does it look like on the ground to you? >> reporter: pretty tense still today. there's no doubt that israelis are on alert. we drove down towards the gaza
border; near a border crossing. some palestinians and others are getting out of gaza. we wanted to see what was going on. as we got closer and closer, kate, there was an israeli military checkpoint. they stopped us there. they said there's something going on. we had no idea what they were referring to. we stopped. we were waiting inside our vehicle and all of a sudden we heard this. >> no pictures. just shoot me. we don't know what's going on. >> did we get the all clear?
>> i know. i'm sorry. >> we're here on the border between israel and gaza. there was a rocket that just came in from gaza. we heard it not that long ago. it was a real moment because all of a sudden we were at this area that had been sealed off and the israeli military was not letting us go any further. they say it was sealed off. we were waiting for permission to go through this checkpoint. we hadn't received the permission yet. we heard all of a sudden the rocket explode. then we saw something really unusual. we saw israeli soldiers ducking for cover. we ducked for cover as well. a young israeli woman soldier clearly was traumatized. she fell to the ground and started to cry. you don't often see that. later she told me it's been really, really hard, especially on these young, 18, 19-year-old soldiers who come here to the bore dr and hear these rockets going off.
>> it's obviously much harder on the palestinian side where israel continues its air strikes and commando raids as well. we know of one, but we're also told others are in the works right now. they dropped the leaflets over the one north gaza town, bet la hee yeah. israelis are warning everyone to get out. a lot of people did get out but a lot of people are staying there. everyone along the border is bracing for israeli attacks on this area where they say so many of the rocketing coming in to israel are launched. still an extremely tense situation, kate. >> you were talking to officials throughout the weekend. any indication -- every day brings another barrage of rockets from both sides. what to expect today, especially with the leaflets being dropped. really it seems that hopes of a ceasefire or talks of a ceasefire really seem to be diminishing. what are you hearing? >> reporter: i know there's a lot of effort behind the scenes.
the u.s. involved, the europeans, the u.n., egypt, qatar, turkey, saudi arabia, palestinian authority. i don't see, at least i haven't heard of any dramatic progress yet. it would be good if the ceasefire rockets stopped coming in to israel from gaza, they stop launching strikes against the various targets in gaza. unfortunately i don't see that happening. i suspect this will play out for a few more days. it would be great if there was a ceasefire. i don't see it happening yet. >> do you get a sense they want to see more u.s. involvement in this or what more the u.s. can do here? >> reporter: well, there are limits to what the u.s. can do on the one hand, the u.s. has good relations with israel. on the other hand, they have no relations with hamas on the other side. the u.s. doesn't talk to hamas because it's considered a terrorist organization by the u.s. government. there's a limit to what the u.s. can do. what the u.s. has been doing,
secretary of state john kerry and others talking to egypt, talking to the palestinian authority, talking to these other third parties who do have contacts with ham 345s, trying to get the rockets and missiles to stop coming into israel and to try to convince the israeli prime minister, benjamin netanyahu and his cabinet to stop launching strikes against hamas. my own sense is the israelis want to try to destroy as much of hamas's military capability as they can over the next few days before they go ahead with the ceasefire. but in the meantime, of course, a lot of palestinians in gaza are suffering and that death toll goes up. >> to that point, wolf, set the scene for viewers, what you have behind you where you are. >> reporter: i'm at this police station in stair wrote, an israeli town not far away from gaza. what they've done is collected a bunch of hamas rockets that have come into this specific area,
display a lot of these rockets, all sorts of rockets. these are rockets that mostly landed in some open areas, as they say, facial land, didn't cause a lot of damage by any means. these are rockets that were not intercepted by the iron dome, the anti missile system. but for the israelis who live here, there are a lot of them who do, every time the rockets go in, the sirens go off. since they're so close to gaza, they only have about 15 seconds to run some sort of shelter. if we heard that siren, we'd hear about 15 seconds to go to some sort of shelter. the rockets just come in and the folks here are pretty taum tiesed. i've been here before. it's a sat sad situation to see what's going on right now. as i say, this is a town by the way, kate, and you'll remember this, that president obama came to when he was running for office back in 2008, visited israel, came to stair wrote. many speeches he's delivered since then he's referred to what
he saw here when he met with israelis, many since that time routinely sleep in their bunkers, these safe rooms as they call them because they're so scared that the rockets will come in. relatively quiet between the end of 2012. but now it's heated up pretty dramatically. >> it's one thing to talk about the back and forth between israel and hamas, but another thing to see the rockets there behind you, wolf, and to talk to people on the ground and the civilians caught in the middle of it all on both sides. wolf blitzer, great to see you, thank you so much. wolf has been there before, always does amazing reporting. wolf will be anchoring from the border, live there for you 1:00 p.m. eastern and of course "the situation room" starting at 5:00 p.m. eastern on cnn. back at home, another pressing concern, the immigration issue now has a face. a face, tens of thousands of children's faces. they're trapped in the border in conditions we do not know enough about. all of congress agrees the
situation demands action but they have so pardon nothing. today congress gets another chance. they're going to take up the president's request for nearly $4 billion in emergency funding to deal with the problem. the question is what will they do with that request. meantime, homeland security says they're going to deginn deportations this week. let's get down to the white house, cnn's michelle kosinski has the latest. >> reporter: this is go time for congress. deciding whether or not to approve this nearly $4 billion that the president has requested. so we have both democrats and republicans saying it's of critical importance but there are still differences in what they say are the root causes, the issues around it and how to solve it. the republicans have wanted more border security and fault the president's plan for not including a bigger piece of that. here is senator john mccain. >> the fact is that we cannot have an unending stream of
children, whether it be from central america or anybody else, to come into our country with all the strains and pressures that is put on our capabilities. it's not acceptable. every nation has the requirement to secure its borders. our borders are not secure, no matter what they say. >> reporter: the president's plan does include a significant chunk, about $1.5 billion for border security and enforcement. and the administration has said, look, this really isn't even a border security issue at this point because many of the children arriving are looking for border agents so they can turn themselves in and then begin the now lengthy legal process of trying to stay in america. they've also pointed out that over all the number of people trying to cross the border is at near historic lows. the spike has just been in these enormous numbers of unaccompanied children trying to get here. chris? >> michelle, thank you very much, appreciate the perspective.
the question is what can the white house do to get congress to act. we will stay on it. a lot of other news. right to mic with that. here are your headlines. millions of us will have to deal with pretty bizarre weather to start our week. the midwest seeing unusually low temperatures while the northeast and mid atlantic are dealing with severe thunderstorms and heavy rain. disney's epcot center not immune to weather-related problems. people were stock on the monorail there for about 90 minutes sunday because of a power outage. 120 people had to be evacuated. parliament is at an impasse after it failed to make progress on choosing leaders in an effort to form a new government. lawmakers suspended the session until tuesday after they failed to vote for a new speaker, a move that would start the clock for choosing a president and prime minister, all this as sunni militants continue to gain more ground in their march towards bagdad. in a daring operation workers and divers completed the
delicate operation of refloating the wrecked cruise ship costa concordia. it's been 2 1/2 years since that ship ran aground, capsizing and killing 32 people on board. it is now being towed to its home port where it will be scrapped. a mysterious odor led to the evacuation of about 50 homes in pennsylvania. emergency crews detected high levels of volatile organic compounds in several homes near philadelphia. the red cross shelter has been set up now for evacuees. the epa and other agencies are working to determine the source of those fumes. quite an unsettling weekend in oklahoma, seven earthquakes reported over the last two days, the largest registered a magnitude of 4.3. there's been a huge spike in earthquakes reported in the state. this year alone 207 quakes with 3.0 magnitude or higher. the state averaged just two per year in 1978 to 2008. no official reason for the spike, but many suggest hydro
fracking could be one of the causes. those are your headlines. 12 minutes past the hour. >> thank you so much, michaela. it's money time, folks. the department of justice has been coming down hard on lenders responsible for the financial crisis and getting big payoffs where jpmorgan chase paid a record breaking $13 billion. another big bank facing the reckoning of the mortgage crisis. poply harlow has more. >> this just getting confirmed. talking about citigroup, a multi billion dollar payout coming from them. a source telling us they are going to announce this with the justice department in a little while. this settles charges that citi packaged bad mortgages knowingly during the run-up to the huge financial crisis. citi and the department of justice have been haggling for months over the amount of the settlement. citi offered $4 billion as much as june. this is much higher, a $7 billion deal. the department of justice
threatened to sue, but somehow they came to an agreement. no lawsuit here. where does the money go? that is what matters. $4 billion to the department of justice, $2.5 billion homeowner relief, mortgage modifications through citi. $500 million is going to go to the fdic and also states attorney generals. you know this means they're not going to be any lawsuits going forward in terms of these mortgage backed securities deals. it's a big payout they didn't want to pay at first. but it will protect them from some of the lawsuits. >> $7 billion, these are big penalties, this deal is one of the biggest, right? >> but it's not even near what jpmorgan paid. let's take a look. jpmorgan paying a record, that was in november, that was $13 billion. $11.8 billion from bank of america, $1.25 from morgan stanley. important things to note here,
bank of america is still haggling with the department of justice over another mortgage-related settlement, in the billions of dollars. we're told the lawyers on both sides are nowhere near a deal. you look at this like a lawyer. you look at it from the bank's perspective and you think this saves us from the lawsuits. it's also a big public relations fight on the part of the department of justice, so many people saying these banks haven't been held accountable. >> you remember that person who committed the crime and didn't have to go to jail, they just paid the fine? no, you don't. it doesn't happen. what people are pissed about here, these banks committed crimes and they're paying their way out of it. nobody has gone to jail, for admitted crimes and they're paying their way through it. where do you think the money comes from to pay it? >> they can afford it. it comes from their customers. >> fees, et cetera. >> we've seen those fees being raised. this protects them from civil lawsuits. it doesn't protect them from
criminal suits. >> poppy, thank you so much. a lot to talk about with that ahead today. also this, coming up next on "new day," is bowe bergdahl ready to go back on duty after five years in captivity? he's been in therapy. is it too soon, though? what other concerns does it raise? >> have you heard the war of words over iraq, the latest one. this one, rand paul, rick perry, getting into it in a big way. we have more on "inside politics" coming right up.

what they found in the military, each of these captives are able to return society ace basically, more relaxed, more able to cope, all on different time frames. it's been about six weeks for bowe bergdahl. my pentagon sources are telling me as soon as later today we expect an announcement that he, too, has finished this he integration phase, recovery, counseling, therapy and will rejoin the active duty military. the word is he will likely, likely rejoin a unit somewhere in texas where he has been undergoing therapy because logically that puts him close to the medical team that's been helping treat him if he runs into additional trouble. one of the most interesting things perhaps, though, now that he's completed this therapy phase of his treatment, it will allow the army to have its investigating officer sit down, talk to him and in a more formal sense ask him questions about
his disappearance in 2009 from his base in afghanistan. how did he disappear? what happened? did he walk away deliberately for the first time in over five years to get bowe bergdahl's side of the story, then the army will decide how to proceed, whether he has any legal liability in what happened. kate? >> barbara starr at the pentagon, thank you so much. now let's turn to a bizarre and fascinating story out of china. the country's most popular tv anchor detained. the newscaster was taken by authorities just minutes before he was supposed to go on the air. nathan mckenzie has more from beijing. >> on china's most popular business show friday there was one major thing missing, the controversial anchor is known for fast cars and big interviews, but taken away on corruption allegations by investigators right before air.

welcome back to "new day." hundreds are fleeing their homes in gaza over concerns about israeli air strikes. israel is dropping leaflets warning residents to abandon hamas facilities. more than 130 rockets were fired in its direction sunday. israel's prime minister says he is sorry for the loss of life but is unavoidable as long as hamas fires rockets from civilian facilities. the death toll in gaza stands now at over 170. an unprecedented election audit under way in afghanistan. afghan and international observers are recounting more
than 8 million votes in temperatural election. the two men vying for the presidency in afghanistan agreed to the recount after weeks of deadlock. last month's runoff has been plagued by accusations of industrial strength fraud. a jet made an emergency landing after one of its engines caught fire. flight 144 was headed from newark to mumbai. a few minutes after takeoff the pilot reported flames out of the left engine. it was forced back to newark liberty airport with 370 passengers on board. the jet landed safely about a half hour after taking off. no injuries were reported. here you go. check out this viral picture. the most disastrous wedding picture is being called -- this the tyler foster. yes, he kicked the bridesmaid in the head and also ripped his pants. posted it for more than 6 million people and counting have

>> >>? /* . let's get to "inside politics wth john king." a man who knows how pants should fit. >> i was just thinking about the art of the segue. here is what you do, you pretend you heard none of that and say it's a very busy monday and let's get inside politics. with me madison square garden real tall len of bloomberg, todd swill lick of "takeaway." why does elizabeth warren have such standing in the democratic party? she's from massachusetts. you can argue she's more liberal than barack obama. yet she was in kentucky campaigning for alison grimes. today in west virginia. michael duke cac kiss won way back in the day john kerry lost it, barack obama lost it twice. why does elizabeth warren have appeal to democrats in red states? >> you're saying why does she
wear the pants. >> ba-doop-boom. >> as we get closer to november, she may not always be the person turning out for the candidate. right now she's a respected figure figure, fresh new ideas. >> is it a test run for the democratic party post obama? hillary clinton is the heir apparent at the moment. somebody will challenge her. elizabeth warren says it won't be here. even elizabeth warren has said in the past she's too wall street, too establishment. >> what elizabeth warren has is enormous populist appeal in the democratic party. she's stood up against the banks, a big proponent of refinancing student loans, a woman candidate like hillary. she can go into west virginia against mitch mcconnell.
she's got enormous credibility and in states that aren't doing so well quickly, that populist anti wall street appeal cuts against a lot of democrats including hillary and someone like elizabeth warren has tons of credibility on the issue. fund-raising is the most important. >> as we said last week when she was in kentucky, she seems to like this. that's the part i'm learning about elizabeth warren. will she continue to say no to 2016? i assume so. >> crowds go nuts for her. it's hard to turn down. >> west virginia, a tough state for the democrats this year. we'll watch this one play out. let's move on to the question of impeachment. some republicans called for the president's impeachment, most recently during the border crisis. among them formal vice presidential candidate and governor sarah palin who says the president should be impeached because of his mishandling of the border issue. eric holder doesn't seem to think much of sarah palin's
legal views. >> she wasn't a particularly good vice presidential candidate. she's an even worse judge of who ought to be impeached and why. >> what makes this delicious from a political standpoint is the president's attorney general thinks the president should not be impeached, he's a democrat and doesn't think much of sarah palin. what it forces when sarah palin comes out like this, now you have the conservative, bob good lat forced on television to agree with eric holder. >> we are not working on or drawing up articles of impeachment. the constitution is very clear as to what constitutes grounds for impeachment on the part of the president of the united states. he has not committed the kind of criminal acts that call for that. >> most republicans who still hold office, they understand sarah palin's role. she can be important to the base but they don't like when she says impeach the president. >> no, they don't. but fund-raisers on the democratic side love it. john boehner says this isn't
about impeachment. he has a lawsuit brewing against barack obama which in this context you can look at as a steve valve, hoping that will let off steam for republicans on the light. sarah palin has made it clear her steam has not let off. democrats love the impeachment talk. it fits into their characterization of republicans as captive of the extreme right of their party, that they have a stranglehold on john boehner and john goodlat and mitch mcdonnell. the senate would never approve it. we know it's not going anywhere. lots and lots of people want to believe this is the best you can do. >> so the democrats raise money off of it. they think it helps them. they don't mind this debate either, the democrats, because it continues to fissure the republican party. >> this is a freebie for the democrats and also not what the sort of core of the republican power structure in congress wants because they don't want president obama to be seen as
someone who is being scapegoated or victimized. thatd want him to be the bad guy, the one messing up foreign policy and letting children across the border or whatever. this takes them off message on this narrative. >> one of the fascinating debates as we move toward the 2016 presidential campaign is the foreign policy debate within the party. a guy who gets hit a lot by the establishment is rand paul, the freshman statutory from kentucky, son of ron paul. rand paul says i'm not my dad. he gets mad when people criticize him, including op ed in politico. rand paul starts with a reference to perry's new glasses. they say they haven't altered his perception of the world. he says rick perry is mischaracterizing him when he says he doesn't care about iraq. he says i support our assistance to the government of iraq which includes armaments and intelligence. i support using advanced
technology to prevent i.s.i.s. from becoming a threat. rand paul doesn't mind getting back here, but his argument is that his foreign policy is a lot more nuanced than his dads and republicans are essentially trying to push him in that corner. >> he's saying don't call me an isolationist. rick perry is doing rand paul a favor by very early in this stage forcing him to figure out how to frame or reframe the way he's perceived in the party. of course, john mccain is going to criticize rand paul as isolationist. what perry is doing is forcing paul to rebrand himself. >> interesting as it plays out. rand paul has had private meetings with republican establishment members. rick perry in 2012 said it was a mistake to take troops out of iraq. he's changed, too, because i think he realizes rand paul may
be more in tuned regarding troops. >> the idea that i'm for opening up the gates and sending multiple numbers of american troops back into harm's way is a bit of a stretch. >> bit of a shift there, too, from governor perry. he criticizes rand paul for not being muscular enough, my term, it seems he's backing away from the idea that you actually put more boots on the ground. >> for republicans, i think the shadow of the neo con looms over this entire debate. rand paul doesn't suffer from being beneath that shat shadow. she's trying to assure republicans and republican-based voters he's not a isolationist republican. with dick cheney and his daughter going out on television to criticize the president, bringing back in the public consciousness, extraordinary unpopular, the iraq war
extraordinarily unpop. rick perry, john mccain and other republicans live under that shadow in the public's mind. it's easier for ran paul to articulate policy. when rick perry talks about iraq, he has this shadow behind him. >> fascinating debate. we'll watch it play out. this will take us right into the 2016 primaries. todd and margaret, thanks for coming in on a monday. back to you guys. the cuomo in the mid wl the two interventionists surrounding him. >> astute. >> that is dead-on accurate is what that is. >> i'd love to debate you. agreed. >> truth hurts. >> tv interventionists. it's not a foreign policy statement. >> true as the need for comfortable pants. i brought it right back. thought we got away. >> tight pants, john. >> i'm going for a swim. >> a good segue to nothing! up next, new developments in a fatal movie theater in

welcome back. an update to a story we've been following since january. the man charged with murdering a fellow movie goer just because he was texting is now out on bail. curtis reeves is the man accused of shooting chad oulson. oulson's widow was there when it happened. she was shot through the hand by the same bullet that killed her husband. we'll hear from her attorney in a moment. we want you to take a look back and remember the story. >> reporter: this morning shooting suspect curtis reeves, junior, is out of jail, back at his florida home on bail. the 71-year-old faces a second degree murder charge. >> and these charges are with firearms. >> reporter: after shooting and killing 43-year-old chad oulson in january at this wesley chapel movie theater, a now notorious fight over texting.
witnesses say reeves, a retired tampa police captain, was irritated that oulson was texting the babysitter watching his then 2-year-old daughter. >> the voices start going up and then, bang, he was shot. >> reporter: the father and son say they watched in horror as reeves allegedly killed oulson with a 38 caliber handgun. >> he said, man, i can't believe i got shot. blood started coming out of his mouth. i just held him. >> reporter: part of the fight caught on surveillance camera. it was played at reeves' february hearing and appears to show reeves on the right in a fight with oulson who is off camera. oulson throws popcorn at reeves. then reeves draws a gun. the judge initially denied bail in february. on friday evening he reversed his position, adopting the appeals court ruling saying in part the record suggests no special circumstances that would justify a decision to deny pretrial release. with his client out on $150,000
bond, reeves' defense attorney maintains his client acted in self-defense. >> at the end of a long journey we're here, he's free. he is where he should be. >> the merits of the case are going to take second to humanity, especially today. let's bring in t.j. grimaldi, the attorney for nicole oulson, the widow of the victim, chad oulson. as i said, t.j., the law fairly clear. we'll get to that in a second. first, what does this mean to her client, that the man who killed her husband -- the bullet bent through her hand as well, he's now free. how is she taking it? >> she's absolutely devastated, chris. it's beyond explanation, to be honest with you. she went from having to deal with this, realizeding she's a single mother, having to do everything that the husband helped out with, the loving father helped out with, put her daughter to bed. it would have been one thing if it happened all at once, meaning
went from the charges to letting out. because she's had the relief of knowing that he's behind bars, it's been more than difficult. >> now, difficult task for you in explaining this to your client is, can you really be surprised by this ruling? we're all aware, the criteria for denying bail is pretty limited. it was actually a little surprising, other than continuing threat, that they held this man in the first place. no? >> i completely agree with what you said. it's -- legally it's one thing. it's not completely surprising he could get out, the burden to keep someone behind bars without bail is high, especially given the fact that he's older. he's been in the community for so long. but from a personal standpoint, knowing her family was ripped apart and that her daughter cannot see her husband anymore for absolutely nothing that he did or nothing that he could have done in the sense that this man escalated it for no reason is why it's so difficult to understand and comprehend,
especially for her at this point. >> maybe as counsel, you give some solace by suggesting that you don't want this man to experience anything unfair in the process because it may prejudice the rest of the proceedings going forward. obviously you want it to be the straightest prosecution you can get. what do you make as a lawyer of the defense theory here that there was self-defense involved? >> well, that dreaded word or those dreaded phrase of stand your ground is always looming in the background. >> they said no at the hearing that they weren't going to bring it. it could be a ploy. what do you think? stand your ground? >> i think they're trying to stay away from the phrase but at the same time i think they have nothing else. they keep suggesting defense, self-defense, self-defense, without saying the three dreaded words. i think that's what it is. other than him being in fear of supposedly popcorn, i can't
imagine what they could possibly be suggesting otherwise to get him off of this charge. >> even the video we've seen clips of, obviously they'll have more when they try to produce at trial, after the popcorn is thrown, is there anything that transpires that i don't know about that suggests a continued force by the victim? >> no. you've seen the video. everyone has seen the video. in fact, there is a delay in time between when the popcorn hits him and when reeves decides to shoot him. in my opinion, that says he thought about it and then he decided to pull the gun. if you want to talk about facts, it's come out during witness testimony that his wife specifically said -- i'm going to paraphrase the quote -- there was no reason to shoot that man. that came out of his own wife's mouth. >> 71 years old. police captain, s.w.a.t. team official. these are high qualifications for someone who should know when to use a firearm. how do you think it plays into the defense? >> i think it hurts the defense
tremendously. if there's anyone out there that should be able to understand when a situation needs to be escalated, versus when a situation needs to be deescalated, it's an individual with his training. he was s.w.a.t. team as you indicated, also in charge of an entire security i can't begin to understand how that's going to help him out i'm going to let you go, t.j., thank you for the perspective. another development, the transcripts from jail, the suspect being very clear, he believes he'll be acquitted, just as clear, your client says no plea deal is acceptable here. you want to see justice carried out. we'll continue covering this story accordingly. please send sympathies home. thank you for joining us. >> will do, thanks for having me. >> all right. kate? coming up next on "new day," a medical breakthrough, how well you smell, the key detection to alzheimer's. interesting. we'll break down the research for you ahead. really... so our business can be on at&t's network for $175 dollars a month?

back with us on "new day." a new test for alzheimer disease could be on the horizon. new studies suggest one day doctors could detect alzheimer's using a smell test or eye exam. senior medical correspondent elizabeth cohen is here with more. good morning. we know that memories and smells can trigger memories, how is it being used, smell that, rather, how is it being used to test for alzheimers? >> this is really fascinating. it turns out smell and memory are controlled from the same area of the brain. so researchers said, gee, i wonder if maybe smell problems show up first?
they took healthy volunteers, and they tested their sense of smell and the folks who had trouble distinguishing different smells, well, they were much more likely to get alzheimer's later in life. so the smell or lack thereof, the lack of the ability to smell really did a great job at predicting who would get alzheimer's. >> interesting indicator. how about the eye test? what can the eye testing show us? >> with alzheimers in the brain you get plaques and tangles, you can see them when you do an autopsy on someone. when they looked in the eye, they saw some of the same plaques and tangles. so, again, able to predict not 100%, but with a great deal of accuracy who would get alzheimer's based on what their eyes looked like. >> we know the tests exist. what is the possibility of them being incorporated into testing when we go into a doctor's office? how soon will it be? >> i think it is going to be years, but i do think that it is very possible that one of these tests will be available from your doctor, also a blood test for alzheimer's that they're doing research on. it is -- the big question will be do you want it?
i think the technology is there. it will happen. do you want to know when you're, let's say, 45, that you're -- you have a high risk of getting alzheimer's when you're -- >> another moral dilemma for us to think about. maybe in my 70s i might want to know. not in my 40s. elizabeth cohen, really interesting developments for us. thank you for joining us. chris? >> one more reason that you don't want to get old. right? >> that's true. >> this is the world you're coming into, little one. >> coming up on "new day," ma", imagine waking up to the sound of a rocket blast. that's the reality of people in gaza. where can they go? wolf blitzer is in the battle zone. he'll be joining us. how low will temperatures go. what you need to know if the summer chill is headed your way. sea captain: there's a narratorstorm cominhe storm narrator: that whipped through the turbine which poured... surplus energy into the plant

the question, what is the best chance for peace? the big chill. temperatures plummeting across the midwest and parts of the east. new summer lows set in for millions as fierce flooding and deadly lightning hitting across the u.s. in disney's monorail forced to evacuate amid the weather madness. cnn investigates our special predators beating the system and getting hired. the shocking details that cnn uncovered. >> your "new day" continues right now. good morning. welcome once again to "new day." it is monday, july 14th, 8:00 in the east. israel's military and hamas militants both bearing down for what could be a long battle in the middle east. hundreds now fleeing their homes in gaza where air strikes have killed more than 170 people.
israel says the strikes are needed to stop hamas terror group after years of rocket fire. >> and this morning, israel says it shot down the hamas drone flying near the israeli coast. cnn cannot confirm the authenticity of the video. this as more than 130 rockets were fired at israel sunday, sending citizens running for shelter. joining us now from near the israeli gaza border is wolf blitzer, anchor of cnn's "situation room." good to have you. good to see you're safe. i call you the team captain, without dating you, you have extensive experience in the region. you worked for the local paper in jerusalem. you worked for reuters. and with that experience, how does what is happening now size up to you for what you've seen in the past? >> well, obviously there is a full scale war, whether 73 war or the wars of lebanon, it is a lot more brutal, but this is
bad. clearly a lot of civilians are in danger. as tough as it is for israelis on this side of the border, i'm not far from the border, a whole loss worse what is going on in gaza now because it is such a small area and there are so many palestinians concentrated in a small area. and the hamas forces, they keep sending rockets and missiles into israel. the israelis go after where they're launched but there will be civilian casualties and there have been a lot of civilian casualties. you reported some of the numbers, palestinians have been killed, a lot of palestinians killed, many more injured. there have been israeli injuries, but so far no deaths here in israel. it is a brutal situation. people are scared on both sides, but they're terrified, a whole lot more in gaza now. as much as the situation is bad, the full scale war is whether a six-day war or '73 war, other wars, they're a whole loss worse. but i'm not trying to diminish this by any means. this is an awful situation. >> quick question about the violence and then a quick
question about the potential for peace. the violence, when people look at the numbers, wolf, it is not good for israel from the they seem to be coming toward a populated area, they have this iron dome anti-missile system. they launch these countermissiles if you will and they do a pretty good job, the israelis claim, they have 87, 88, almost 90% success rates. if the missiles and rocket goes into an unpopulated area, farm land, open area, they don't bother to send up the iron dome
n terms of the casualties, it is lopsided. i was here at the end of 2012 the last time israel and hamas went to war and there were relatively few israeli deaths. there were some, not many, but hundreds of palestinian deaths at the time. that was a lopsided casualty count as well. that just goes with the nature that the israelis are much better in terms of self-defense. there isn't a whole lot of self-defense in gaza because the rockets come up, the israelis go after where they're launched and sometimes launched from heavily populated areas. >> by way of instruction, i want to direct the audience to what is behind you. that is a collection of ordinance that has gone off, right? >> right. these are rockets that came in to this area, this is an israeli town not far from the border of gaza. if you look, you can see these are the shells. these are shells that went off, they were not intercepted by that iron dome system.
they just went off and they went off in relatively unpopulated areas in the outskirts, if you will, of the town where i am right now. every time a rob et comes in, by the way, into this area, since it is so close to gaza, only a few miles away, they only have a limited amount of capability in terms of 15, 20 seconds for people to hear the sirens and then go seek some sort of shelter and if you're further north, further away from gaza, whether tel aviv, might have a minu minute, minute and a half, a little extra time to seek shelter. when you're close to the border as we are right now, it is 15, 20 seconds. the sirens were to go off right now, we would have 15 seconds, 20 seconds to get inside and get into a safer area. >> those full shells behind you certainly give some perspective. you've been reporting there for many years, nobody knows it better. wolf, please stay safe and remind us of the rest of you are watching the situation, it was wolf who back in the '70s asked the leader of egypt about the
possibility of athletes getting to visit again and started a dialogue that many say contributed to a new process for peace. we'll see what he reports from the region this time. be sure to watch him, anchoring from the israel/grenada boaza b. humanitarian crisis in the gaza trip. let's talk about the situation there. joining us is yousef banaer of the jerusalem fund which raises money to aid the palestinian people. he's also the executive director of the palestine center. thank you for coming in and thank you for your time. >> sure. thank you for having me. >> let's talk about the situation on the ground. every day brings another barrage of rockets, one side to the other. also know leaflets being dropped by israel in northern gaza, alerting citizens to -- alerting residents to get out, to seek shelter. also hearing that hamas is urging the same residents to remain at home. why is that? >> let's keep in mind that the
context at play here, you have to remember the gaza strip is a very small territory that is teeming with people. it is extremely densely populated area and the reason for that is because the vast majority of people there are refugees from towns and villages inside of israel where they had homes razed to the ground. that refugee crisis that is a human rights crisis, not just humanitarian crisis, plays into the ongoing humanitarian crisis that we see today and have seen for several decades. and so there is a tremendous trauma among the population of gaza and having already experienced depopulation, the destruction of your homes. and so you can understand why so many of them are absolutely terrified at the prospect of becoming refugees once again. this is the context in which the deeper historical context in which this bombardment is happening. >> but with all of this context,
why then if israel is trying to alert citizens and civilians there that they need to get out to keep them safe, why is hamas telling them to stay at home? >> unfortunately we have seen on many occasions in the past where palestinians have complied with all different kinds of messages from the israeli military and still have been bombarded in what was supposed to be safe areas, most notoriously perhaps was the event in the israeli operation cast led in 2008, 2009, where they bombed a school filled with refugees, a united nations school filled with refugees and killed scores of people there. so there really is no safe place in the gaza strip. there is no refuge for people in the gaza strip. places throughout the territory are being bombed. they -- the israelis are not permitting palestinians to exit through the crossing in the north, only passport holders of
foreign nations are allowed to exit through the border in the south. so people are literally trapped inside this large open air prison and being told to effectively move to a different corner of the prison cell. that's really not in benefit of protecting civilians in any way. >> israeli prime minister pointed out, he also kind of suggests that hamas is trapping them in this open air prison as well as you just said. they're accusing hamas of deliberately putting civilians in the line of fire. the prime minister saying this, and this really stuck with me, we, the prime minister saying, we're using missile defense to protect our civilians and they're using civilians to protect their missiles. are they? >> again, you're missing the fundamental point here that you have a -- >> what am i missing? >> i'm attempting to explain to you, you have a massive state-backed military against a nonstate actor, operating within what is a civilian population
because they simply do not have a state-backed army. you cannot, as the israelis do, deny a people statehood for years and years on end and then wonder why they do not resist as a state. it is simply not going to happen that way. doesn't happen in any similar context like this. so i think, you know, the talking points that the israelis put forward is the rhetoric, you know, maybe catchy for sound bites and so on, but there is also another reality here and that's that the israelis are using their weapons to perpetuate an occupation and a siege in the gaza strip for decades now, where as palestinians, some of them, are using weapons to resist that. >> any talk of cease-fire seems to be slipping further and further away. what do you think will change that realistically at this point? >> i think there needs to be intervention from the international community and particularly the united states, which has some leverage over the israelis. few players do. and that's really the important
part here. you know, the united states has offered to facilitate a cease-fire, but more are needs to be done, offering facilitation is not enough. it is important that the united states demand the cease-fire because the reality is, look, the israelis went in multiple times with all kinds of force and were unable to change the military dynamic. there is no military solution to this. knowing that, and engaging in a war in which civilian casualties are inevitable is truly poor decision-making and in fact is criminal. >> and civilian casualties continue to mount with every passing day. thank you so much for your time. thanks for being part of the discussion. >> thank you. >> of course. chris? >> back here at home, weather creating a lot of trouble. some people dealing with a weird mix this week. the midwest is going to see unusually low temperatures in some places. could get into the 30s while the northeast and mid-atlantic will face severe thunderstorms. meanwhile, even the happiest place on earth was not immune to
the less than happy conditions. people stuck on the walt disney world monorail for an hour and a half because of a power outage. can you imagine that on vacation. george howell has more from storm weary chicago. what do you have to tell us? >> chris, good morning. so, yeah, we have seen storms here in chicago. and, look, it is july. and we're talking about cooler temperatures on the way. it is kind of depressing it look at that. the big picture, though, has been a lot of severe weather, storms in the area, and a lot of rain. flash flooding over the weekend in suburban chicago turned residential streets in impassable rivers. this driver tried to cross it. but then look moments later he and his son had to be rescued after the car got stuck. so much rain fell so quickly, it flooded basements and overwhelmed the sewer system in burbank, illinois. >> came down so fast, and we
just couldn't, the water couldn't keep up, our sewer pipes couldn't keep up with the water we had. so everything just backed up on us. >> reporter: 2 to 4 inches of rainfall fell in northern illinois, 4 to 6 inches soaked communities downstate, and more rain is in the forecast. in florida, the weather caused a chaotic scene at the happiest place on earth, about 120 passengers had to be evacuated from the monorail at disney world after a power outage caused it to stop in its tracks, trapping passengers 30 feet in the air. witnesses say they saw a few bolts of lightning nearby. disney officials blame bad weather for the power outage. then, in colorado, lightning strikes from passing storms made for dangerous conditions in the high altitudes of rocky mountain national park. >> we didn't see the bolt, just a white flash. >> felt like something hit me in the head and i lost my vision and hearing for a solid ten seconds. >> reporter: officiales say two people died as a result of lightning strikes in as many days.
13 others were injured. and looking ahead at the forecast, many parts of the country are in store for the feeling of fall and what is normally the warmest time of the year. unseasonably cooler temperatures are expected as the jet stream dips down further south than usual, dropping normal summer temperatures, some 10 to 20 degrees, though in places like wisconsin, people are all taking it in stride. >> after the winter we had, 60 degrees feels tropical. >> so, look, if you're in the midwest, get ready, cooler temperatures ahead, grab the scarf, you may need it. here is the other thing on the east coast, that threat of severe weather definitely something to keep an eye on. >> mark, we see you, 47 degrees. we send you warm hugs if you're watching from marquette this week. army sergeant bowe bergdahl could return as early as today. he has completed therapy at an
army hospital and is expected to take a job at ft. sam houston. he'll live with a pair of soldiers who will help him adjust to life in the u.s. after five years in captivity with the taliban. the wrecked cruise ship costa concordia is afloat again this morning. overnight, workers slowly lifted the vessel by pumping air into tanks attached to the ship. it will eventually be towed away in one of the biggest maritime salvage operations in history. you'll recall in 2012, it struck a reef off italy's coast, capsizing and killing 32 people. the pakistani teenager who became a global symbol of fighting terror is vowing to help free hundreds of school girls being held in nigeria. malala yousufzai celebrated her birthday with some girls that escaped.
today, she pens an editorial in "the washington post," lamenting the millions of girls worldwide unable to go to school and makes a plea to prevent them from being targets of violence. disappointment turned to rage in buenos aires following argentina's loss to germany in the world cup. unruly fans vandalized shops, threw rocks and bottles at riot police, some 30 arrests were made. by contrast, the mood across germany, weirdly, jubilance. the 1-0 win over argentina, germany's fourth world cup title, but first since 1990. i want to show you how a german astronaut celebrated. he tweeted these pictures after his home nation won. happy guy in space. knowing his team won. >> play soccer in space, you'll need velcro, i guess. >> i feel like velcro would be a must have item. >> for everything. does look like you have great ball control.

welcome back to "new day." listen to this, kids are being warehoused on the border in conditions that we aren't allowed to access as freely as we should. wouldn't that usually inspire a massive aid mission? well, not when they're undocumented kids. then they're just a sign of a problem. and as troubling as that is, the bigger concern is what will congress do about this problem that they're all shouting about? a $3.7 billion package is on the table from the president, the question is will they accept it, will they come up with something else, will they just talk? let's bring in rubin navarette,
cnn contributor and columnist for "the daily beast." appreciate having you here on "new day." the situation is painfully obvious. do you think this gets accepted or do politics force some further iteration? >> there is a lot of politics. politics is changing the view of folks on this issue, clouds their thinking. this is a humanitarian crisis. i don't think the republicans have the nerve to kill this package. i think they're going to accept the package. they want to get rid of this, what part of the package is for. they also want to -- i don't think they have the nerve to stand up and say that they don't want these kids treated well on u.s. soil, which is what the rest of the package will do. >> one thing i'm wondering is you've got kind of -- got eye lot of conflicting parts of this. at its core, you look at the politicians who are examining this, secure the border, put more resources there, or get these kids processed through this system faster. does one of those have to happen
before the other can? can they not happen in conjunction? >> in politics, they want to do it first, secure the border first and then deal with the humanitarian issues. it doesn't work that way. they both have to happen at the same time. i think at the end you'll have a compromise, you'll have the funding for the president and they'll come forward and try to alleviate the situation. the kids are suffering right now. >> that is going to change that? in the end they'll reach a compromise, it sounds like they're no closer to moving first, they say the president can move first as well. >> they can't do it. that's the problem here. the two issues you outlined, securing the border and deporting them, neither can be done. you cannot secure the border to anyone's satisfaction. they have done that. we have put -- i've spent weeks on the border showing how we secured it, it is not secure. forget that. forget that as an answer. it is, well, send them back fast. you can't find out where they're from or who is there for them? that problem being ignored. that's what we saw with the governor in nebraska, they sent me the kids, didn't tell me
where they're from, they don't know where they're from. >> there is a tendency to oversimplify the issue on both sides. we should keep them all and whoever comes next and folks say we have to deport them all. the more rational point of view, treat them as refugees, don't let them get sucked into this endless immigration debate. focus on this, treat them as refugees, hear their cases, and see who can stay and who has to go back. but take politics out of it as much as you can. >> dare i ask why is it they're not seen as refugees? >> because we have a tendency to think of anybody that comes across the border uninvited is an immigrant and illegal immigrant. they are coming from war torn places, lives threatened, sexually assaulted, threatened with war, families threatened to be killed, so of course they're refugees. give them a hearing. >> and that's not a brace, by the way. the law passed in 2008, bipartisan law, bush signed it, but the democrats pushed very
heavily for it, it calls for an asylum hearing. it is part of the law that these kids were being trafficked, that's what the law was designed for, not this specifically, they get a hearing. we're not even hearing about that here. >> this is an election year in 2014, in november. a lot of democrats in congress are nervous about this, they feel if people are allowed to stay, it will create more turmoil in the community. in an election year there are political considerations and unfortunately the humanitarian issues are taking a back seat to that. >> i thought it was interesting, the column over the weekend, you believe there could be real political fallout for the president in not visiting the border. some said it is a photo-op, why are you telling me -- that's what presidency is about in some part. you have to do photo-opes to show you care. what is the fallout? >> this will be a big story, coming out. i got a call last week from a prominent latino democrat, he appears on cnn. he called me, he agreed with my column and he thought this was hurting the president, latino
democrats in particular, because as a president, we expect you to go to the border to see the crisis firsthand. when you don't go, there is suffering, you're saying i don't want to see it because then you to do something about it. on top of the fact we started talking at the beginning as chris pointed out, the conditions are horrible that they're being housed in. >> and the excuse, they won't let us in. have you ever heard of politicians being kept out of a situation they want to see, if tlael l they really want to see it. >> they said there are privacy concerns. some republican members of congress have gone down there and have been turned away and said they could not talk to the kids, could not see the kids and fighting it back and forth. >> and members of the media. we see the kids, they take away our cell phones. not allowed in. >> you want to play the privacy concerns, do it. all i'll say is this, i've never seen a situation where politicians wanted access to something and didn't get it.
>> right. >> like this. these are kids who are in bad conditions, we know what the guys in charge of them say we're doing as well as we can, but suboptimal. >> right. we need a humanitarian push. these kids don't have showers, hygiene, adequate food and housing. the administration is saying the minute we found out about the kids, we jumped in with both feet to help them. that's not the case. politics and election year is mixing everything up and i think the kids have gotten lost. this crisis started about kids, but now it is about politicians and sound bites. >> that's why obama didn't go, the other side is not going, they don't want to be seen with the kids. >> then you posed with the kids and what are you going to do about it? >> good to see you. >> good to see you. coming up next, wolf blitzer on the ground in israel, just moments ago rockets from gaza targeted the town where he is. shrapnel falling just feet from him. he's going to join us live to talk about it and the ongoing situation.

welcome back to "new day." this just in to cnn. moments ago, a rocket launched into israel from gaza, near wolf blitzer and his team who is on the ground, debris raining down just feet from where they were. wolf was on with us, just a short time ago. wolf is back with us now from the israel/gaza border. wolf, what happened? >> remember last time we spoke, just a little while ago, i was speaking with chris and i pointed out, you really have 15 seconds once the israeli sirens go off to seek some sort of
shelter. there was a rocket that came in from gaza and went right towards where we are here, the israeli town near the gaza border. it was intercepted by an iron dome anti-missile defense system. it went out, you heard a huge, huge boom from the sky. and the rocket coming in, missile, whatever it was, coming in from gaza, was destroyed. here is the problem, if you don't seek shelter, you're going to have a -- be in danger because even though the rocket was destroyed in the air, the shrapnel starts coming down very, very quickly to where you are. and right in this area, where i'm standing right now, all sorts of shrapnel was coming down. these little metal pieces you can see right here, unfortunately, if it hits you, you'll be in deep, deep trouble. so that's why the israelis, they're well trained, they hear the sirens, they have 15 seconds when you're close to the border, 30 seconds further away, a minute if you're in tel aviv, further north. you run -- you seek cover
because even if the iron dome intercepts and destroys that rocket in the sky, the shrapnel is still going to come to the ground and little pieces, if it hits you, potentially that could kill you. >> you're seeing it all firsthand, that's for sure. talking about the threat of it, last time we spoke with you and then see it right away. wolf, thank you so much, please be safe as we always say. wolf doing amazing reporting on the ground. you can watch wolf anchoring from the israel/gaza border live at 1:00 p.m. eastern for "the situation room" starting at 5:00 p.m. eastern today. time for the five things to know for your "new day." number one, our top story, wolf was mentioning, hundreds of people are leaving gaza over concerns of air strikes. the israeli military is dropping leaflets warning of strikes which are targeting hamas militants, firing rockets toward israel. a chilly wet start in parts of the midwest. unseasonably cool air hitting the region at what should be the

welcome back. please listen up. a six-month cnn investigation finds sexual predators are beating the system and getting hired at some of america's best known theme parks. yes, this is a story that is airing tonight on "ac 360." kyra phillips joins us now with a preview of it. tell us, my friend, what do you see? >> well, i'll tell you what, we discovered that employees at these famous theme parks, they're around our children. you have no idea how perverse
they r we'are. we're talking about men that operate the rides, security guards, pierformers and they're being arrested for sex crimes against children. i want to be clear that none of these cases involved teenagers or children visiting the parks. however, child advocates tell us this is still a threat. and poke county sheriff grady judd is known for aggressive six stings and that's how we discovered a pattern of theme park arrests. here is a taste of his passion to takedown these child sex predators. >> i talked to a number of these men, and they said, it is entrapment. i was totally set up. >> what else are they going to say? are they going to get on national news and say, i'm a pervert? i'm a child predator? i seek sex with little boys? no, they're not going to say that. when they tell you that, look them in the eye and say, you're a liar.
what you really are is a pervert, a sexual pervert, a child predator. >> can't put it more strongly than that. he has fire. fire and passion. >> no question he's known for it. the question becomes what do you put behind the talk? how can you -- can you legally keep predators from these jobs? >> sure, it is a great question. it is ongoing background checks, intense background checks, and these parks say, look, we're doing all of that, we're doing that with all our power, but there is still more that can be done. according to grady judd, according to child advocates, and according to lawmakers, and our story is already prompting action on capitol hill and we'll talk about that tonight on ac 360. >> help me with something that will be a source of confusion as people try to make sense. >> sure. >> we're looking at these people, we believe they're a risk, but we're not talking about what they have done at the theme park? help me distinguish. how do we know they're a threat then. >> there are a couple of crimes
within our investigation that did happen on the park. and that was downloading of pornography, child pornography. with regard to actually trying to make contact with a child, that didn't happen to any kids or any teenagers on park grounds. however, i mean, the experts tell us that that doesn't matter, it is still a threat, that these guys, they see how far they can get, they try this, they try that, they go a step further, and that is the huge concern for child advocates. >> you get the combination of somebody with an urge, that they can't control, that they know is going to get them in trouble, you have something very -- you have very dangerous person. >> i got to tell you, as a mom, this was eye opening, chris. >> i got to tell you, as a dad, it doesn't make you smile either. that's for sure. we don't care about anything the way we care about our kids. thank you for making this known so people can learn more. appreciate it. >> and you will want to learn more, so check out the full
investigation, it airs tonight at 8:00 eastern on "ac 360," only on cnn. kate? >> all right, coming up next on "new day," george clooney taking on the daily mail for making up a story about his fiance's family. can he force the tabloid to scale back their salacious reporting? really... so our business can be on at&t's network for $175 dollars a month? yup. all five of you for $175. our clients need a lot of attention. there's unlimited talk and text. we're working deals all day. you get 10 gigabytes of data to share. what about expansion potential? add a line anytime for 15 bucks a month. low dues... great terms... let's close. introducing at&t mobile share value plans... ...with our best-ever pricing for business. we've always been] at the forefrontumman,

theme song for the segment. >> welcome back to "new day." george clooney taking on a hollywood gossip giant. the daily mail apologized to clooney after publishing an inaccurate story about his fiancee's mother that suggested she opposes their upcoming marriage for religious reasons. clooney refused to accept said apology saying, quote, i thank the mail for its apology, not that i would ever accept it, but because in doing so they have exposed themselves as the worst kind of tabloid, end quote. joining us now, lloyd grove, editor at the at large of the daily beast and entertainment correspondent nischelle turner. ladies first, i'll start with you, are you surprised he's being so public about it? he's not public about a lot of things. >> not surprised about this because we all have our bully pulpits, right? this is george clooney's. he does take up certain issues and when he takes them up, he believes in them passionately. i think this is because it wasn't about him, it was about
people he loves and also because he said that this was promoting, i mean, religious strife that doesn't need to be. and i think there was a part that really struck him where he said there were jokes about if you married outside the religion it could lead to the death of the bride. and that, i think, hit a nerve with him and he said, no, enough is enough. >> it is interesting that he chose this route of public shaming rather than litigation or something like that. >> yeah. that's what george -- george is very media savvy and picks his shots. he knows he has a big bully pulpit as you say. and he uses that, you know, for causes like what is going on in southern sudan, and, you know, i talked to him several years ago, he was mad at arianna huffington for taking interviews he did and cobbling together into a blog for the huffington post without, he says, without his permission. and he got really mad and called me up and said, look, i write
all my own stuff, i use my media exposure for my ends and i don't let anybody misrepresent me. so he's very careful about that. >> he just did it with steve wynn, not too long ago. had his bout with steve wynn, he said steve wynn said something negative about the president and george and him -- >> we're talking about not just a man with a lot of star power, we're talking about the daily mail, still blows my mind, 180 million monthly web viewers. with that comes a lot of power. this is a landmark victory. the world's most unapologetic rag apologized to the actor on friday. but of course makes you wonder is this a sea change, a new chapter that we're going to see or unusual because it is george clooney. >> is this a sea charnge? in a word, no. the daily mail, this is the cost of doing business for them. angelina jolie, george clooney, good friend, considering suing them for posting some video of
allegedly, you know, when she was on heroin, she denies that. and, you know this is what british tabloids are used to. they get sued all the time. >> you used a great phrase. i had to look up french. you called it -- everybody's favorite -- dark beast. the ultimate truth is they're fighting a losing battle. the culture moved to an appetite of this stuff that is stronger than the law or any desire to check it. >> well, if there is a war between hollywood and the daily mail, i think the daily mail has the upper hand. but people like george clooney and angelina jolie can win some battles. >> this isn't new. celebrities do sue the tabloids and do win. tom cruise won when he sued for $50 million against life and style. carol burnett had a landmark decision, almost 30 years ago, she sued them and became kind of
the person to see this forward. katie holmes sued. kate hudson, cameron diaz. >> and they generally win. >> they generally win. >> particularly in britain where the libel laws favor the complainant. you don't have to show malice. it can be accurate. if it is defaming, you might still have cause. >> here you have to show you knew it was wrong, you knew it was false and presented it anyway out of malice. >> that's what clooney is saying, why he doesn't accept their apology. he said, when you first reported it, you said they met with high members of the community. now you're saying it was a family friend. either you were lying then or you're lying now. >> which one is it? >> i appreciate too he's the son of a newsman. he understands the value of solid reporting and the journalistic ethic, you know what i mean? that to me makes it even have more significance. >> clooney is not afraid of reporters. he engages all the time. >> absolutely. >> it is just the bar has just changed. if you look at who made celebrities today, and for what,
this would have never been imaginable 20, 30 years ago. you would never see that, wow this person was in a sex tape and it was really horrendous, now they have a perfume. that's new now. and it skews what is decent, what indecent what is allowed to report on what isn't, what is too far? >> that may be a function of the technology because you couldn't post a sex tape on the internet 20 years ago and get famous enough to have a perfume. >> what is successful for celebrities in this love/hate relationships, suing them or shaming them? >> that's a good question. >> shaming sells. if you're suing in britain, you could get a little change out of this. >> even most celebrities i don't think -- i think this shows the star power of george clooney. i do think that if most everyday celebrities wrote a letter like this, the daily mail would say, please, we're not taking that down. but you're right. >> we appreciate you coming on this monday to talk to us.
thank you. >> the daily mail banner is up and we're all talking about them and at the end of the day, that's good for them. >> for them, yes. >> let's take a break on "new day." a mom goes into diabetic shock and guess who saves her? and guess what lengths this little boy goes to? you're going to want to see this. it is the good stuff. so, your site gave me this "credit report card" thing. can i get my actual credit report... like, the one the bank sees?
